Yamaha's 1st "customer" race bike. Initially only available as a "kit" to convert their 1st sports 250cc, the YDS1, into a race bike. 2 were raced in the UK in 1960 - 1963. This ultra rare machine took around 10 years to restore and is regularly ridden at race parades. Seen on display here at Uttoxeter Classic Bike Show on the Yamaha TZ Owners Club stand earlier in the year.
